    "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Time Enough For Love, by Robert Heinlein

    There were much better Medici's than Cosimo. And Trotsky might be my favorite. He was a cool dude.

    Trotsky's ideology was also better and genuinely wanted to help Russia. Stalin was fucking crazy

    I like Cosimo more than Lorenzo.

    I do understand that the Medici was one big family but Cosimo started it all so I figure that he is the most important and therefore my favorite.

    The government of the United States has been a complete joke throughout its tenure, although Thomas Jefferson was okay I guess, Thomas Paine as well, but they're less historical figures and more theorists
